Samuel D. Jackson

Litigation Associate

Samuel  D. Jackson was born and raised in Central Florida. He attended Rice University as a National Merit Scholar, where he studied orchestral trombone performance and won positions in several music festivals, including the Roundtop Festival Institute and the National Orchestral Institute. He was an active leader in the Rice branch of the ACLU, where he helped conduct know-your-rights seminars. After completing his Bachelor of Music degree, he moved to New York City, where he studied at Fordham University School of Law.

While earning his Juris Doctorate, Sam was an Associate Editor of the Fordham International Law Journal, and he provided free legal representation to indigent criminal defendants through Lincoln Center Legal Services, Fordham's criminal defense clinic. Sam spent a summer clerking in the chambers of the Honorable Justice Adrian Hardiman, of the Supreme Court of Ireland. There, he drafted judicial opinions that became part of Irish law, and even persuaded Justice Hardiman to adopt the American practice of setting a time limit on oral arguments, for the first time in Irish legal history. Sam was also the Director of the Fordham chapter of the Suspension Representation Project, a program in which law students defend public school students at their suspension hearings.

As an attorney, Sam's practice focuses on civil litigation in a variety of areas, including Personal Injury, Consumer Fraud, Civil Rights, Education Law, Funeral Industry Defense (Funeral Directors, Morticians, Professionals and Facilities), Professional License Defense, and all areas of Family Law. Sam is licensed to practice law in all Municipal Courts in the State of New Jersey, the Superior Court of New Jersey, the United States District of New Jersey, the District of New Jersey Bankruptcy Court, and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Sam is passionate about protecting civil rights and studying the intersection of law and politics. Sam is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Burlington County Bar Association, American Bar Association, and the National Police Accountability Project (NPAP).
